I don't really know why you would like to stay at this place. I booked it since it was "close" to the Greyhound bus station and I needed to stay somewhere over the night before my bus continued the next day. As I don't have my own car, it's difficult to get around. I walked all the way to downtown,... More

I just registered to Tripadvisor so I could warn people about this place (of course I will also make some reports about the good places we stayed but this one has priority). Stayed in this hotel for one night end of Juli 2014 because all other Hotels or Motels in Wilmington were booked out. Started with the price. The women... More

The women up front gave me the wrong room and I walked in on other people that had already rented the room, I would not allow my kids to swim in the pool because it was black on the edges and cloudy and wreaked of chlorine Then on top of that the internet went out for a few hours and... More

We had reservations at another hotel; however, because that hotel messed up our reservations we were left with Budgel... The only hotel in the area with vacancies. The rooms are very dated with no sign of improvement in the near future. The carpet and comforters were both stained with what looked like blood. On the 2nd night the towels didn't... More

I stayed here on a last minute visit to Wilmington when it was literally the last place in town with any vacancy. There are a lot of negative reviews for this place but I will address what I am able to say I actually experienced. I ended up in a smoking room since that was what was left. It didn't... More

DO NOT STAY HERE. I have generous standards when it comes to accommodations...I don't need much to be happy. The place had several dead roaches, body hairs in the linens, stained towels, stained carpets, holes in the wall. To make matters worse, the couple that owned the property were rude and nasty at check in. We asked for a refund... More

The motel was disgusting, there was mold on the walls curtains and floor. There was no ventilation in the bathroom which led to there being water damage above the sink. I've already reviewed and posted pictures but they keep getting denied. I just don't want someone else accidently staying in this sad excuse for a motel. I will reupload my... More

I had to get out room last minute and I would have rather slept outside. The room was full of roaches, the tv didn't work, and it was over all dirty. When I told them that there were roaches, they gave us "complementary bug spray." As I said before, it's best to go to a different hotel or just sleep... More
